054: Ward Roberts, Artist, Photographer

“Call it destiny… or call it stubborn.”

Welcome to Notes on Doing, conversations with people who love what they do.

I’m Jenna Matecki.

Our next episode goes to Ward Roberts. Ward is an artist. He’s also the photographer behind the celebrated Courts photo series – a gorgeous collection of photos of empty sports courts (think tennis courts, basketball courts, you name it).

Listen to what Ward had to say about photographing people with character, finding your voice, believing in yourself, connecting with others, and making honest work.

Also, there is now an original Notes on Doing poster illustrated by Luna Adler. Links for Luna’s Etsy store are featured on notesondoing.com. It’s amazing. Check it out and buy it! Also know that 100% of all proceeds directly support Luna, @lunaadler.

All right, plug over, here’s Ward Roberts:

051: Friday Jones, Tattoo Artist, Painter & Philosopher

“It’s funny how life will line up for you – once you know your north star.” 

Welcome to Notes on Doing, conversations with people who love what they do.

I’m Jenna Matecki.

Our next episode goes to Friday Jones. Friday is a tattoo artist, painter, and according to me, a philosopher. She is one of the most credentialed and celebrated tattoo artists of today, having inked thousands of tattoos over the past 25 years – whether they’re secret tattoos for famous actresses or the Tasmanian devil on your ankle.

Listen to what Friday had to say about post office eagles, scab merchants, surfing with the guys, and the liberated mind.
